As you can see, having sown about 15 seeds for pot I'have had a good germination rate
(with the exception of a couple of pots from a different seed source) !!!
Seedlings are a couple of months old and to me they look great  ;D
About 200 horizonthalonius are in open air, the same number is still in the bag !!!

Thanks  :)
Idon't know which works better . . .seedlings are too yong !
Pink poly evolved in "variegated" seedling (not sure about that)
actually it is half pale green half whitish/pinkish, but still in the bag.
As soon as it comes out of the bag I'll take a picture !

I see now that jars are not the best way of handling the "hard" species. They take too much space. I'm also curious which works better! Anyway - good job. :)

I want to show you my first grafting attempt . . .
E. Horizonthalonius SNL94 on pereskiopsis . . .
Graft took quite a bit to heal but at the end it worked
(there are 30 days difference between first and second picture)

I picked up some pots from the propagator just to show you some interesting features,
(seedligs are same age, 7 months)
picture 1  group photo
picture 2  Rancho la Campana, supposed to be without spines, at the moment I see no differences
picture 3  Subiki , they definitely grow up smaller than the other seedlings
picture 4  Horizonth. from Tula (tamaulipas) very well growing even though spines are so tiny

hello mikey,
very good results! are you still keeping them in the propagator?
Maybe they are big enough to be put outside...
How long are you keeping them under lamps?

thanks

Hello guys,
Yes . . .  I'm still keeping them in the propagator ,
I think they are big enough to stay outside but at the moment
I have no chance to set them up properly . . .  :(
I live in a very small flat with no place for seedlings pots and shade cloth,
I should move them to my country house,  where all of my cactus live outdoor,
but the place is too "wild" for seedlings so I decided to build a greenhouse,
until then I have no choice  :-[

Hello guys,
Some update . . .  8) :
Many of them died in the last year, I would say about 20/25%,
remaining seedlings are enjoing the sprimg summer,
and I think that after 15/17 months are finally out of danger !!!
Now they are in full sun , as soon as sun gets too hot I will use some shadowing net  ;D
First picture is a parryi, second one polycephalus, third one horizonthalonius ...
